    Run don't walk to read this play. The characters are complicated and delicious for actors to dig into, the story keeps you on your toes through the last image, and the writing is whip-smart and full of specificity, heart, and big big questions about the roles we play and the systems in which we play them.

    This. Play.
    This play effortlessly wraps its arms around classic literature and pop culture and the everlasting quest for women to come into their power in spite of the men who would stand in their way. Kimberly not only understands the voices of young people, she loves them so damn much that she gives them the kind of complexity and depth on the page that they possess IRL. What a gift she is.

    This play is gorgeous, timely, and timeless. A heart-full exploration of what it means to live in community and the social contracts we make and break. I love this play.

    I saw the NNPN Showcase reading of this play. It ripped my heart out and lifted me up and I am obsessed. This is the kind of heart-full work we need.

    I thought I knew what I was getting into with this play - and I was most delightfully wrong. This is feminist historical reimagining at its sexiest, most frank, and hilarious. And you'll do your prop designer a portfolio-making solid by producing this fantastic play.
  • Little House in the Big City

    Emily writes plays about real people encountering the most complicated moments in their lives, and LITTLE HOUSE is no exception. This play will resonate with anyone who's ever done everything "right" and ended up someplace that feels dead wrong. And, as usual, it's brought to life with crackling dialogue and a whip smart female protagonist.

    You have to read it to believe it. And then you still might not believe it. This Swiss-watch of a play is as expertly crafted as it is hilarious as it is dripping with blood. Download it already.

    Sarah's insightful look at what it means to be an ambitious woman reckoning with desire and success is simultaneously hilarious and full of all too rare honesty about the feminine experience. The conversations it generates around the rehearsal room table and in audience response are important, especially now, and vital for our field to consider.

    Grittily poetic, unrelentingly brave. This play tells a beautiful story with love and integrity. It also offers complex, authentic roles for four actresses of two generations - two sets of actors portray sisters Meg and Ellen. Working on this play in development has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career.
